Apollo Saku - UK visit

We are delighted to welcome our Uganda PfHU Director: Apollo Saku, who has just arrived in the UK for a four week visit.

If you wish to meet him yourself, he will be attending our forthcoming music event on Oct 8th and will be accompanying Kate Oakley as she gives charity talks to various groups in the UK.

We all agree that it is great to see Apollo looking so well and to hear all the fantastic news about the development and future projects and needs of Cornerstone School.

The children at Cornerstone School, Uganda are all enjoying the new library and hope to gain more reading books soon. They have all had their Covid 19 vaccination and the senior students are working hard and revising in preparation for their end of year exams.

PfHU Trustees were pleased to also hear about the Women’s Cooperative and the plans to fundraise for a cow so that all the nursery children can have milk in their daily bowl of porridge!

Please support us by attending one of our music fundraising events or visit our website to book a talk or make a donation towards many of the exciting projects, or just sponsor a child so that they can look forward to a brighter future.

Please contact Kate (CEO of PfHU) for tickets to events or to book talks via 07791680204.

RGBI Community Champion Award for PfHU founder

Kate Oakley, the founder of the charity, has been named Champion of Change for the 2021 RGBI Community Champions Award. This prestigious national Rotary award is for her outstanding work in bringing about change in the bush village of Kititi, Uganda and is in recognition of Kate’s tireless drive to enable the community to become self- sufficient, giving them hope for a sustainable future.

Nominations were received from Rotary Clubs throughout Great Britain and Ireland. Kinver Rotary Club nominated Kate.

Bewdley and Kinver Rotary Clubs have been supporting her work in Uganda, funding several projects to improve life in the bush community since the charity, was formed in 2012. The current project is a dormitory for 50 orphaned and vulnerable girls at Cornerstone Nursey and Primary School in Kititi. The dormitory will provide safe accommodation, free education and health care.

Girls Dormitory Building has started with Water harvesting and Solar power

Thanks to all the generous donors, over £10,000 has already been raised towards this project. 

The site has now been cleared and footings and foundations done. It’s full steam ahead now the rainy season has ended. We do need more funds to furnish and provide further latrines, for example, but it’s a fantastic start and a huge THANK YOU to all who have contributed to date.
